Everhour vs Asana native time tracking
Here is why Everhour is the best time tracking solution for Asana
Pros of Everhour + Asana integration:
- Everhour offers more advanced time tracking than Asana's native time tracking feature, such as the ability to set different billing rates for different projects
- Everhour also integrates seamlessly with Asana, which means you can track time without leaving Asana's interface
- Everhour allows you to generate customizable reports that show how much time you or your team has spent on specific tasks, projects, or clients. This data can help you make better decisions about how to allocate resources and manage your time more effectively
- With Everhour, you can share detailed reports with clients. This transparency can help you build trust with your clients and improve communication
Cons of Asana native time tracking feature:
- You have to turn on native time tracking for each project
- You cannot set up individual estimates
- You cannot configure project billing
- You cannot set up project budget
- No Timesheet functionality
- No time approval
- No detailed reports
- No important notifications, limits or team tracking policies
- Upgrading to Business or Enterprise tiers in Asana is expensive. Even for a small team, it is much more profitable to stay on Asana Free or Premium plans and use Everhour.
- You cannot see total time by section or project as well as progress on other pages (Portfolio, Home, Timeline)
- Admins cannot report time on someone's behalf, can't see what the team is doing right now
How does Everhour integrate with Asana?
After you successfully connected Everhour and Asana, there are multiple
useful features you can start using directly in your Asana interface
Time next to your tasks
You'll see a timer, estimate, and reported time next to the task title, as well as total time, displayed by section, custom field, or for the entire project.
Time in task details
In the task details, you’ll see the time reported by each employee and its progress, plus time on parent and subtasks. You can track time using the timer or log time manually.
Manual time entries
If you forgot to start the timer, or you prefer to fill in all your work hours in one go, use manual mode.
Choose a billing method for your project: hourly, fixed fee, or non-billable. Set up the budget and the limits. Receive an email alert when you reach a certain threshold.
My Timesheet button
Quickly look at all your timekeeping for a Day or Week as well as start the timer or add time and comments for the tasks you have been working on.
Time on Portfolios
Estimate and reported time will be displayed on Asana's Portfolio page.
Time on Homepage
Don’t waste time searching for progress updates on your most important projects. Everhour shows estimate and reported time right on the Home page.
Time on Timeline
Use Timeline to create project plans that help you stay on schedule—so you hit your deadlines. Everhour helps you by showing estimates and reported time right there.
Everhour adds the Project Summary page right into Asana's interface. So the information about time spent on the project, budget usage, billable vs non-billable hours, etc. - everything is just one click away.
Your questions. Answered!

Yes. Just click Try with my Asana and connect it with Everhour. The next step would be to install our browser extension. And that's it! Open your Asana and start tracking time.
After integration, Everhour embeds controls into the Asana interface and thus extends it with many useful features. You can keep tracking time from Asana, through the Everhour website or browser extension.
No problem. You can invite and pay only for those Asana users who are going to track time and use other Everhour features.
Only those people who are a part of your Everhour team and installed our free browser extension can see time-related data in Asana.
After you register your Everhour account and connect it with Asana, you can track time only for yourself. To invite teammates, you should go to the Everhour team page and manually invite your team by entering their emails. Each employee should finish the signup flow and connect their Asana account.
Unfortunately, due to technical reasons, this is not possible. Only folks at Asana can decide to integrate with Everhour. No other time tracker can do this.
A time tracker you can trust for life
“Everhour has the best integration with Asana compared to other time tracking tools — including Asana’s preferred integration (Harvest). And it’s not just because it’s more affordable than Harvest. With Harvest you have to click the icon in the task to start the time, then you have to set the project and task you want to track time for. That’s 3 additional clicks every time you want to track your time. With Everhour you just click your button to start your time. The product team at Everhour really gets UX here — their integration automatically pulls in all relevant data to your task including task name, section level, project, team, tags, literally everything available via the API! Imagine how useful having all that rich data can be if you want to report on things! No more settling for Asana’s weak and fluffy dashboard reports. With Everhour’s rich data you can export it into a data source to analyze or visualize in BI tools like DataStudio or Tableau.”

"I recently discovered that I can connect my Everhour with each of my client's Asana accounts and it has changed the game for my time tracking organization. I don't have to spend time creating tasks anymore because they are already created by the client in Asana! A project manager's dream."

"Everhour is helping us figure out how much time we need to deliver our various services. This, in turn, helps us make better decisions and run our business better. The Asana integration is very useful and usable. It's terrific, for example, that timing on sub-tasks is summed up in the main task. Tracking time estimates against actual time worked is helping us figure out our capacity planning. The interface and tools are well-designed and generally easy to use. Everhour's value-for-money for features offered convinced us to make the move. It seemed to fit our needs better than Toggl."

"I've been using Everhour for over a year and things have been great. I've used the major alternatives and Everhour is the most seamless to use with the most features. The ability to capture data directly from Asana and track time without having to define a project every time you need to do so is a huge time saver. The ability to also track budget based on whatever ways work best for your business model is fantastic as well (e.g. by cost, hours, billing, etc.). Everhour had a more seamless integration with Asana-even better than Asana's own native integration with Harvest. Everhour just works better and takes less effort/time."

"Best time tracking software ever! Everhour's integration with Asana is seamless. More than that the reporting that you can do with it is insane. I now have accurate historical data on all my previous jobs to help me estimate future jobs more accurately. I love how staff billable hours are automatically pulled through to reports. Everhour helps keep track of my staff and how their time is allocated on projects. Since the time we spend on projects is essential for accurate quoting the time Everhour tracks is vital in keeping my business profitable."

“As a remote-based company, we highly rely on task management tools such as Jira and Asana, and it's critical to control and gain knowledge on how we spend our time, and that's what is Everhour used for. Since we use two different tools, Jira for the tech team and Asana for the management team, we found in Everhour a very practical way to concentrate reporting regardless of the task management tools every member of the team uses."
